International Women’s Day – UN WOMEN UK – HE FOR SHE ART WEEK

 

UN Women NC UK is working to light up London – starting with the lighting of the London Eye in HeForShe Magenta, in launching the first HeForShe Arts week on Wednesday for International Women’s Day!

HeForShe is the UN Women solidarity movement for gender equality and UN Women are partnering with arts organisations and performers all over London to raise awareness and create real change for women and girls all worldwide.  We know that to do that, we have to shift culture, so we are drawing on the power of the Arts to help shape our view of gender and evolve behaviour.

It’s going to be an amazing and busy week!  Please visit their website for the full calendar of events http://unwomenuk.org/en/heforshe.html we would particularly draw your attention to A Quiet Passion, exclusive screening with special guest appearance from director/screenwriter Terence Davies on the 8 March – tickets here and Alice Russell, live at the Roundhouse on the 10th March supported by Natureboy – you can book tickets here

 

Happy International Women’s Day!
